RUTLAND, Vt. -- A Pittsford man wounded in a shooting has been ordered to write an apology to the State Police officer who shot him.
David Harvey, 35, was shot by Sergeant Thomas Jacques in April 2002.
Police said Harvey was drunk and pointed a muzzleloader at Jacques, refusing orders to drop the weapon. Jacques fired two shots at Harvey, hitting him in the left shoulder and stomach.
Harvey was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center, where he was in critical condition for several days and was later released. An official investigation later ruled that Jacques was justified in shooting Harvey.
Harvey was charged with several offenses in connection with the shooting and the events leading up to it, including assault on a police officer.
Harvey pleaded guilty to the charges this week and was ordered to serve one to five years in jail, all of it suspended on probation.
